. edgar hoover is -- and his f.b.i. campaigns to drestroy king, politically at least, was far more vicious, far more relentless and cruel that public officials in the united states would do. how did i learn that or how did i come to that conclusion? after a two- three-year battle with the f.b.i. and with my friends in the l.b.j. library, part of the national archives, i was finally able to put together a mosaic of hundreds of f.b.i. memos that went to the president. i saw how the president reacted to them and didn't react to them. and even though great reporters have covered this story well starting in 1975 with the church hearings, i was appalled about that. i don't want to be a total alarmist when i see what the f.b.i. has been empowered to do again in investigating citizens, i have great pause. >> and how did you change your mind? did you change your mind on anything? >> i changed my mind on the -- on really, the central idea of the book. when i started out a lot of very well meaning, bright, dedicated white house aides and johnson cabinet officials told me that the president despised m
shooter and also told the fbi and atf responding to the scene to assist with the investigation. janet shamlian joins us on the phone from houston. what is the latest? >> hello, s.e. sounds like an altercation that turned in to gun fire between two individuals. the scene we have is three people are shot. we may have a fourth person who was the victim of a heart attack. we have one person in custody. there is a lot of talk about another shooter. there's a search actively at this point for another shooter that's unconfirmed at this point. but this campus of some 18,000 students is sprawling. it is surrounded by a wooded area that leads in to a neighborhood. and right now, harris county constables aided by a number of law enforcement agencies are fanned out throughout that wooded area. looking for potentially another gunman. students have been told to shelter in place. many have already fled the campus but we're to believe many others are just locked down in the rooms they were in when the gun fire started. >> janet, it is our best understanding at this point that the victims in this shoo
people i should say, multiple people have been shot at a harris county college. i've got fbi profiler clint van zant standing by. clint, this is the second time that we have been on air since newtown where literally we have had breaking news during a conversation on gun legislation. i was just talking to congressman chris van hollen and we break in with news regarding this shooting and waiting to get information in texas and it was, i believe, just last week or maybe two weeks ago, again, in the middle of a conversation on gun legislation and there was a shooting in california. right now, we don't know much about what's happening here. when's happened i should say here but police are saying, clint, multiple people have been shot. >> yeah. you know, what i'm afraid we're seeing is there are a number of people who because of pending gun legislation for one thing are buying guns. i was at a local sporting goods store where i live in virginia, and people were stacked up two deep at a gun counter buying guns and the ammunition had almost been cleaned -- this is a large store. and the ammun
federal agencies, the fbi will a lot of times will respond as part of task forces. get them there to try to set up a perimeter, and then deal with what you know and try to contain that shooter where he or she is. >> mike, stand by for me. chad myers, let me bring you in here. just to give you a little bit of perspective as far as where we're talking about. sounds like a massive sort of college system, six campuses, this is the north harris campus in harris county, texas. where exactly is that? >> and harris county is the county that houston is centered on. if you just go north of houston proper, just a little bit, you're up here to the lone star campus, up here, there is houston proper, drive on up, and the campus is right there. you expect texas to be an area that is devoid of all trees, but, in fact, this area up here, the woodlands is actually really fully forested. that also could be another little wrinkle in the investigation, the trees and the forest and the land, and, mike, you know how it is, compared to trying to find somebody on the plains compared to finding somebody in a fore

allen and jill kelley were discovered in the f.b.i. investigation of petraeus last year. it's been more than four months since the deadly terror attack on the u.s. diplomatic facilities in benghazi, libya. tomorrow, america's top diplomats will finally answer questions about what happened or should we ask them. one of them. where are the dozens of survivors of that attack? why haven't we heard from them? national security correspondent jennifer griffin reports tonight from the state department. >> ambassador steven's body was missing for nearly 11 hours. u.s. military assets in europe were alerted but never utilized. yet, the state department accountability review board chaired by admiral mike mullen and thomas pickerring concluded last month, "there simply was not enough time for armed u.s. military assets to have made a difference." that is not what congressman jason chaffetz was told by general carter hamm when they traveled to libya after the attack. >> he told me he had proximity and capability but he was not told to go fight for those people and save the people when the firefight
the fbi to anonymous e-mails that led to the downfall of david petraeus. jill kelley gives an interview to howard kurtz. kelley went to the fbi when she got harassing e-mails traced back to paula broadwell. the investigation revealed that petraeus was having an affair. and then it looked into jill kelley and john allen. messages were described as potentially inappropriate. it was a big scandal. lots to get to this morning. howard kurtz, whose exclusive interview with jill kelley just posted on the daily beast. >> good morning. >> she talks to you black mail, threats. lay those out for us. specifically what was being black mailed? what kind of threats was jill kelley getting from paula broadwell? >> a very emotional interview. jill kelley talked about the nightmare her life has become and everything changed when they started receiving those anonymous e-mails we know were from paula broadwell. she used words, jill kelley, like black mail and extortion. she said she was terrified. wouldn't tell me the exact nature of the threats. i didn't get to see the e-mails. she felt she had no choice
to bring in now, don clark, former houston fbi, a member-- a former member of the houston fbi, don, you're a wonderful resource here at fox 26. have you been hearing any additional reports of what's going on here at lonestar college or can you add any information to this? >> well, i have not, and recently, but looking at this and what little bit that i've heard so far, it sound like that it can be something that gang related, somebody that's challenging someone else, that's causing this type of activity. >> don, i also want to ask, i mean, in situations like this, we've got parents that are watching possibly right now on their lunch break, horrified it attendance lonestar college or their child attendance nimitz high school or middle school or one of the schools in the area. what do you recommend or tell them? >> well, first of all shall i think it's pretty difficult to tell the parents don't do anything and stay where you are, as the case may be. >> right. >> having said that, i think the parents have to realize that they need to try to get in touch, contact with some entity at the sch
nature and black mail so she says she went to the fbi to protect herself and her family and suddenly the thing explodes. she's holding a birthday party for the 7-year-old daughter and the media invasion takes over her front lawn. that's got to be presentee daunting. >> black mail and extorsion are not legal. a prosecutor can only work with so much. if your star witness, re, jill kelley, isn't interested in going forward, that's perhaps why we don't have charges in this case. however, great reporting and good reading. say that again. >> just to clarify, prosecutors decided not to go forward with any charges against paula broadwell. >> like i said, good reading and good digging. you know what, there's nothing like setting the record straight. certainly if it's our fault, that needs to be called out. always nice to talk with you, howie. >> thanks, ashleigh. >>> a prince called to duty. >> it wasn't done the wrong way. >> that's prince harry in the middle of an interview as an alarm sounds and the third in the line to the british throne dashes off to his attack helicopter. unbelievable i
to you very soon. let's bring in former fbi profiler clint van zandt. clint, we heard this may have been some kind of dispute between two individuals with some being caught up in the cross fire. what are you learning from your sources? >> well, what i have heard unofficially, martin, and you and i know how confusing the reporting is in these stories initially, was that at least one of the two shooters allegedly had a weapon in a backpack and another had what has been described as semiautomatic pistol. at least one of the shooters, perhaps one with the semiautomatic pistol, is alleged to have emptied the magazine. now, depending on the caliber of that weapon, that could be anywhere from 5 to at least 15 rounds under the current standard of magazines that could be carried for pistols like that. and i think that one of the terrible statistics you just referenced, martin, that now the clock has been reset. so far in 2013 we have had four shootings on college campuses. martin, in all of 2012, there were only about five. we've got four and we're only three weeks into this year. >> now, i under
the right. >> yjackie robinson, muhammad ali, martin luther king was bugged by the f.b.i. and all kinds of rumors were spread about him and the demonizing of barack obama falls into that power. and one of the things that he did today was place history, in the history of civil rights and the history of progressive movements into the mainstream of america, you know, traszi ingtr back to the declaration of independence. >> it's interesting to go back to what the dating is here. here's myrlie evers, the widow of medgar evers. ole miss, alabama and the wondrous thing, of course, the wife of the attorney general -- by the way, we just lost james woods -- james hood the other day. he died. and he was one of the two people who were integrated, basically, at gun point with george wallace standing in the door back then. in alabama. >> yeah, i mean, those were incredible times. and you and i have some recollection of those times. >> but not the president. >> no, he doesn't. he doesn. he was, at best, a baby when these things were happening. it's -- but he -- but he knows the history. even if he h
on at the federal and state level. so in alaska last year the fbi gave covenant house its community partner award for the work that we're doing to identify victims of sex trafficking and to work on the prosecution of those who traffic kids. in pennsylvania several weeks ago, um, covenant house in philadelphia led a coalition that successfully championed new safe harbor legislation that helps victims of sex trafficking. and that would be true throughout the united states, and, of course, in latin america where covenant house works in mexico, nicaragua, guatemala and in honduras, we work very directly including we co-prosecute some of those cases against the gangs and cartels who are trafficking kids who are as young as 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 years old. the work that we do to help victims recover depends on where that victim is in terms of their exploitation, their suffering. but it almost always involves, um, psychiatric counseling, helping young people begin to deal with rape and exploitation and then help them build a plan forward that's not very different that the work that we were doig, you know, 30 y
. this is not the fbi. this is not the state department. this is me thinking that until the last attack, when they went in and stormed the plant, because it's the people said they were going to blow up the plant, and the algerians took over and did what they did, they stormed it, what i understand they executed all of the hostages. >> reporter: suzanne the family says they spoke with victor a few days before the siege had actually taken place and that victor lovelady never expressed any concern about going to work there at this natural gas facility. he said that he assured his family many times everything was safe and that he wasn't worried. all of this very difficult for the family to handle, especially his daughter, erin, who with her older -- younger brother are mourning the death of their father now. >> nothing's happened there in so long and my -- we -- my friends have been doing it for so long. it's fine there it's so safe, we have protection. he really truly felt safe there. >> reporter: suzanne, the family says that they don't know when victor lovelady's body will be brought back to the united
of terrorism right across north africa. norah, charlie? >> allen, thank you. john miller former assistant fbi director, good morning. >> good morning. >> what do you make of this new statement that says these attacks will continue? >> one it says the group is doubling down. you would look at this through any normal prism, say it was a stunning defeat. they're not going to look at it that way. their people have gone to martyrdom, they'll get their reward in heaven, now on the map because they got publicity and that will affect places where they have a footprint, that could be libya, niger, mali chad, you know, anywhere in the region. >> northern africa is certainly a focal point. what does it mean that two of the hostage takers were canadian? that doesn't seem to sort of fit with the normal description of these terrorists. >> that could mean a couple of things, which is they have a successful recruiting arm over the internet to get canadians to come over. it could mean that they were algerians who went to canada to receive asylum and then were recruited by the group but
from rota, spain were not sent to benghazi. as a result the f.b.i. could not enter the benghazi consulate for 24 days. that prevented them from doing crucial work on the ground in benghazi that would have helped them get to the bottom of who was responsible for this attack. >> reporter: what remaining questions do you have about the conclusions of the accountability review board, that is a committee headed by admiral mike mullen and former ambassador thomas pickering about mistakes made in benghazi. >> reporter: wong of the recommendone of the questions we have is they say they interviewed 100 witnesses and officials who were involved that night in the benghazi response, but in recent weeks we've spoken to two different members of the cia/grs team srels srels diplomatic service. they say they were not given access to all of those involved in the rescue that night. we also know from some of those who were on the ground in tripoli that night, some of those who were part of the rescue team, that they were told when they took off from trip low to benghazi that there would be, quote,
've got the fbi, the alcohol, tobacco, firearms bureau and others converging on the scene and we're told there are about five different local agencies surrounding the woods there looking for that one shooter who apparently has not been identified. as ed reported, this sounds very different, wolf, from the types of situations we've seen aurora, colorado, newtown, connecticut, and other places where one individual went in indiscriminately and started shooting. this appears to be an altercation between two people in a school setting which makes it sound like more like the things we've seen at public schools and major metropolitan areas and some other universities where police have to start asking questions, was it drug-related, was it gang-related, was this a score settling of any type? these are the types of questions. and congresswoman sheila jackson lee of texas who represents this area, harris county, texas, was asked that question and sort of restated it on air a while ago but we doubled back to her office and they told us, the fact of the matter is, the school does not have, to their
